How To Get Beard Flat Like This?

How do you get a beard to look so flat like this? I don’t have money to pay to constantly get my beard done. Usually I use my Phillips Norelco with the hair guard on the lowest and just shave down. But it doesn’t get it flat, it’s not even either it has longer length under my ears. And I feel it doesn’t look as uniform, I can see a lot of individual hairs. I’m not patchy at all.
I figured it’s my trimmer, but idk what to get.

          My trimmer guard is set to lowest. I meant to ask if there is a suggested trimmer to get for this type of stuff.

          that beard is way thinner than the one in the OP image, not gonna look as good pretty much no matter what

          F

          Yeah unfortunately your facial hair is just too thin for the style in the OP image.
          Sorry bro, I have the same issue. If you’re under 30 it might further thicken with age.

          You can still work with what you have.
          A problem you have at the moment is that your neckline looks like it’s too low.
          On top of that you have denser hair below your jaw line so it’s drawing attention to the neck part of your facial hair specifically making your face look even thinner.
          Compare how low your hairline is to the OP image.
          Try shaving it higher.

          Thanks anon, good info. When you say neckline, you mean the line I stop shaving right? I see, his looks like it is high basicallt on the jawline on the corners of his face, and comes down onto the neck below the jaw at like an acute angle.
          How can I do this cleanly at home?

          Also do beard thickeners or that micro needling shit work?
          I don’t put anything in my beard. Maybe putting stuff in it will also help with that slight irritating feeling on my skin when I touch it? Or thats just normal.
          And yeah I’m in early 20s.

            Yeah

            It’s difficult, just a matter of practice.
            Move it up a mm or two at a time and then step back and turn your head to get an idea.
            You probably will go too high the first few times when you’re experimenting.
            Another option is to go to a proper barber that does facial hair and ask them to show you. Tell them you want a short facial hair style and ask how to make it look the best with what you have.
            >Also do beard thickeners or that micro needling shit work?
            No idea, sorry.

            When you say irritating feeling do you mean after you’ve trimmed?
            That’s normal. Freshly cut facial and body hairs have a flat tip where the blade cut it off. The edges of it are sharp and irritate when they touch your skin. Over time the tips erode until they taper to a rounded point and they stop irritating.
            I think there are products that can help but I’ve never used them.

            Brought the line closer to my jaw, I feel it already looks a lot better
            Under the chin was where it was kinda difficult. Because like I said in the pic his meets at an angle an actually lays on the upper neck it looks like. So I tried to do an angle from my jawline down.

            Tough to get an angle to show the neck area under chin
            Might still be slightly too low.

            But I will prob take it to my barber so I can see

            Much better

            Much much better, just taking away that dark hair under your jaw makes all the difference.
            This is the importance of contrast in things like this, having a particularly dark or light patch where you don’t want it completely redefines the appearance of the rest of the composition.
            Women have to follow similar rules with makeup, 90% of the impact is composition and choosing where to draw attention and where to blend in.
            You might be good to just leave it at that height but for sure a barber check is a good call.

            Yeah I have some headshots to do soon, so I will go to my barber and get it perfectly lined and cleaned and my haircut too and stuff.
            That makes sense though, I always felt it looked a little odd but I am newer to having a beard. It’s also tough to tell sometimes, even from a mirror. Like you don’t always get the perspective others see, because you’re so used to seeing yourself.
            Appreciate it anon

            My suggestion is to let a good barber do your neckline/cheeks for you and then just trim and maintain the outlines he makes for you. I’ve always been terrible at figuring out how to do my own neck line and cheeks so I just let a barber do it properly and maintain it
